Steel arch filled with concrete

The arch formed by a steel pipe filled with concrete, which at the scale 1:20 modeled the arch of the bridge structure, was tested for several positions of the live load. The failure mode and the ultimate capacity of the structure was finally determined.

In collaboration with the Department of Concrete and Masonry Structures, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Brno University of Technology.
